Roadside bomb wounds 2 German soldiers in N. Afghanistan
Two German soldiers sustained injuries as a roadside bomb struck their military vehicle in the relatively peaceful Kunduz province in north Afghanistan, a press release issued by the Kunudz-based German Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) said Monday, Xinhua reported.
"The roadside bomb hit a military vehicle in Chardara district on Sunday injuring two German soldiers," the press release added.
It also confirmed the body of an insurgent had been left at the battle ground after the clash.
Earlier on Sunday, a purported Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, in talks with media from an undisclosed location, claimed inflicting casualties on German troops.
Kunduz has witnessed increasing Taliban activities over the past several months while the militants have vowed to speed up attacks against Afghan and international troops based in the post- Taliban country.
